Two Tear-Jerking Questions
As the man explained what was happening, little Charlie instantly cried. The man said: “So I got a really important question. Can you be my daughter? Can I be your daddy?” Charlie was speechless and completely stunned.

She only nodded in approval before giving her soon-to-be stepdad a long hug. She didn’t pay much attention to the jewelry in the box. All she wanted was a warm embrace from the man who would fulfill an essential role in her life.

“Oh, man. She’ll remember this forever. Every word. God bless you, mama. I know the road to him was hard. congratulations!!!!!”

“Such a sweet and unforgettable moment!! My husband did this when he proposed to me. They even had their own set of vows during the wedding ceremony.”

“My stepdad is my dad. [He] came into my life at eight and had been there since. This is exactly how I felt when he adopted me and my siblings.”

“I wish this was me.”

An Example for Others
Children need loving guardians in their lives, especially while they are young. If more men were like this soon-to-be stepdad, the world would be a much more loving place.

While many kids grow up with single parents or without a mom and dad, other adults can step in and provide the guidance they need through adoption or by vowing to look after a partner’s little ones.
